Painted Hills



Boardman was founded in 1903 by Samuel H. Boardman, who helped irrigate the area, laying the groundwork for Eastern Oregon agriculture.

Potatoes, onions, mint, dairy, hay and hybrid poplar trees now complement the traditional grain crops farmed by this community along the Columbia River, while the area’s dairies help produce 55 million pounds of cheese annually for Tillamook County Creamery Association. Fishing, hunting, birding and water sports are popular pastimes, and the nearby SAGE Center highlights the history of the area's sustainable agriculture and energy through interactive exhibits.
